When I was asked if I wanted to review the LG TWINWash it was a no brainer.
My machine is about 15 years old and has shown me on a few recent occasions that she was tired. She’s washed her fair share of stinky school uniforms and wet bedding and it’s her time to go to a quieter home. Maybe to a little old lady who reads and doesn’t do anything strenuous to require frequent clothes washing. Maybe her. My old machine would like that.
The TwinWash is incredible. It’s modern and sleek. It’s smart and exciting. It looks like a time machine. It lights up inside and sings a little song when the load is finished. It makes me stop past the laundry just to peek my head in.
But honestly, if you’re going to fork out your hard earned dollars, you want it to work. Not just make your laundry room look good. And at a RRP of $3999, you want it to work for every dollar.
It washes two loads of washing at once. Say what now? Yes, 2 loads at once. I had my towels washing in the massive 16kg drum while at the same time, my everyday load of socks and undies, pjs and uniforms were all washing below in the 2.5kg mini wash. I halved my time. Two different settings. Washed and ready to be hung out.
You can wash and dry in the same load and setting. We have loads of glorious Aussie sun that allows us to dry outside most of the time but if we can’t, we can set the load to wash and dry without interruption. The dryer can dry up to 9kgs.
There are a phenomenal amount of settings. Baby care, allergy care, sports wear, wool, steam, turbo, your duvet’s for crying out aloud. I have washed a number of vomit and wee covered doona’s over the last 15 years and I can tell you how many times my machine has liked it. ZERO. Banging around, moving on the tiles, constantly unbalancing and at which point I have to reach in, wrestle my doona that’s twisted around the center pole thing and move what feels like a dead body to another part of the machine. Not to mention, while that one doona is washing, the rest of the bedding and wet clothes are sitting there next to the machine, waiting their turn. I haven’t had to wash any doonas just yet, but knowing my luck, i’ve probably jinxed myself now.
It’s smart. Not quite smart enough to actually sort and lift the clothes into the machine (fingers crossed to review that if LG can get that idea off the ground), but if they were already in the machine, I could start the load from my phone while I’m out. Yes. There’s an app which can control the TWINWash. Not only does ‘Smart ThinQ’ allow you to wash your preferred cycle, it also checks your energy consumption based on the use and cycles you choose.
My teenager has already been shown how the washing machine works. Much to his displeasure. His afternoon chore just got twice as big but it also gets done twice as fast. Here you can see him in his natural chore complaining state.
I am really enjoying using the newest member of our family, because it is perfect for families. It is smartly designed and luxurious. No doubt about it. If it can make one of the least desirable jobs we have, better, then I am all for it.
